6:01 pm
people were hurt but you heard them, three suspects and finally they caught one of these guys that has been doing these robbers around town. you're about ipods and i-pass but now finally the have someone in custody. but look at the damage left behind. >> that is crazy, thank you very much. this developing story out of oakland, this is video into the newsroom, police have detained a person who may be linked to last night's take over robbery of a safeway store in neighboring san leandro. five armed robbers stormed the safeway at 9:00 and ordered workers and customers to the floor and stole money from the cash registers. no one was hurt, a whole incident happened in about 40 seconds. >> call it a pepper spray payout. the video when viral, uc students doused with pepper spray during a campus protest. tonight new details about $1 million settlement. phil matier explains that is

6:10 pm
>> of thing we can do is prevent a second concussion from occurring on top of the first one which could be catastrophic. >> the series of test before and after and injury and the treatment can be costly. this doctor is setting up a non- profit to provide education and treatment to help i schools play it safe. >> it is very new and people are not used to it, they're not taking ownership of the education that is part of what we're trying to do. >> the message hit home sooner for others, and adds a sense of perspective. >> high-school football is a lot of fun but it is not your whole life. >> alliance are four games into their season and already they have had four players receive concussions showing how fast that this can happen. in the short term it does look like we are going to see more of these concussions reported as people get a better idea of what to look for but long term it looks like the game itself will have to change so that we can avoid dramatic hits. >> thankyou. >> the uc this? this is the

6:16 pm
the hayward fault, in fremont, because of what is in this paper. implications that seismologist could not believe. that what they found could have triggered the big one on a fault like this anywhere in the bay area. the story begins very quietly five months ago. >> planet earth was unusually silent early last april, there had been a scattering of magnitude five earthquakes across the globe when suddenly ... a huge number of big earthquakes erupted worldwide. >> this is an extraordinary spasm of global earthquakes. this is something that i thought was impossible. >> he and his colleagues think that all of those aftershocks were triggered by this ... what turned out to be a bizarre magnitude 8 1/6 earthquake in the indian ocean last april 11th. >> is this something that you never thought you would see? >> this is an unprecedented earthquake in every way, i cannot believe it.
6:17 pm
>> that is because it turned out to be the largest ever recorded on what is called a strike slip fault, the same kind of fault that underlies much of california. >> the moment that you learn that this was a strike slip earthquake, what went through your mind? >> how bizarre. >> no one ever thought that this mechanism could trigger such a huge earthquake. so let's look at a model of how they work. it is a very simple model, with the north american plate here and the pacific plate over there. and in between? masking tape holding the fault together. the pacific plate moves northwest 2 in. per year, the strain increases and increases. and increasing until ... it snaps the surface, resulting in dramatic offsets like this one in what is now south san francisco after the 1906 earthquake. but but earthquake last april was 25 times more powerful than 1906. >> unlike anything you thought
6:18 pm
this mechanism could produce? >> that is right. this earthquake resets are thinking about the maximum magnitude of these events. >> the moment the earthquake snapped it sent the strongest energy waves on record worldwide, triggering those quakes across earth, something never seen on such a scale before. >> these were all large earthquakes, potentially damaging earthquakes occurring all over the globe. in the days after this event. >> it is likely that they were triggered on faults that were ready to go anyway? >> absolutely, not just kind of ready to go. you could read on them and they probably would have gone. >> there is one fault that we know that is ready to go. >> that east indian earthquake, could this have been the earthquake to push over the hayward fault and finally rupture? >> yes it is quite possible. >> and there, there is the physical hayward fault, look at the offset in the skirt. this side of the fault headed to

alaska and decide staying put on a hot metal plate, bumping want a few centimeters per year, so for instance if my dog is on the pacific plate and she would be in the san pablo bay and 4 million years, both by creeping and big shots on the vault. the next and there's a big earthquake onerous, are we on alert? the answer, probably not. this is unheard of. the thrust earthquake not as big of a problem and those have been much more often than what we saw back in april. >> i am hoping it is a one every 1 million years kind of earthquake because you're giving me heart palpitations year. >> you should have them to because this thing that i am standing on is the most dangerous fault in the bay area, the last summit went off in 1868, it is due any time. any time. >> we talk about it all the time

kept the money. just days before the case went to trial in 2007, he settled and paid the city back $31,000. >> i am linda yee from channel 5 ... >> we asked him to talk about the complaints against him. >> some of the people that you have dealt with in the past say that you're not honest and i don't support you in this candidacy. >> these issues have come up before. >> a couple claims they lead you to hundred thousand dollars for a bio diesel company, did they lead to that money? >> those are things that are currently under litigation, and it will be solved through litigation, so for me to speak about those things, that would be highly inappropriate. >> his plans website claims he is in partnership with east bay mud, the utility says that is not exactly true. >> as anything happen? having started building? >> as far as we know, nothing

6:35 pm
points. and in florida he has a nine. edge, who is helping him in the sunshine state? it would be seniors, and women. the question now, how significant is this whole? >> is this the turning points in the election cycle? >> this is a turning point but it is clear now that obama has moved out of the margin of error in the swing states. so it is now going to be much harder for mitt romney to see a pass, a strategic path to victory. >> most voters identify the economy and jobs as the number- one issue this election year. in this poll all three swing states, pennsylvania, ohio, in florida, have a majority of voters choosing the president as their man to lead the charge. something we have not seen before. >> we noticed that he has managed to weather the concern about the economy largely because mitt romney has not convinced people that he will be a preferable alternative.

>> he is a presidential campaign strategist and has worked with both bill clinton and hillary clinton as well as al gore and he says that it is not over yet. >> particularly in the age of replacement referees that we're seeing in the nfl, the obama campaign should not be celebrating in the end zone to early. >> but he believes that it will be tough to recover after mitt romney was seen talking about a 47 percent who do not pay federal income taxes in a secret recording. >> last week for mitt romney will arguably go down as one of the worst weeks a presidential candidate has had in modern history, objectively speaking. he began the week with a 47% and you know it was difficult and he tried to trump that by putting out a tax return where he only paid 13%. >> he says the next debates could be his last chance in this election. >> i think it is two strikes against mitt romney and he has his third chance at this debate but given where the race is, he has to do something pretty

not by a day above normal. and oakland only 64 degrees. three years ago today, go back three years and we have a record high in livermore of 103 degrees, that happens with an offshore wind. we will be close to 100 this weekend in livermore, a pattern will certainly be changing. lots of cloud cover at the coastline moving inland through the golden gate and spilling over the peninsula. change is coming as soon as tomorrow. the first thing that we have to do is shut off the tap of the cold air coming from the pacific. notice a 3 or 5 degree temperature rise as high pressure moves over top of us and get less of the onshore flow and then we get a different source of air starting saturday. the weekend will be very warm both weekend days, high- pressure will set itself up over northern california, enhancing the offshore wind and with the offshore wind we will get very warm with a high fire danger
6:48 pm
this weekend. the son will be out earlier with couche. it will be the worst we can we have had in the bay area since late july. call tomorrow back to normal. 73 in san jose with a high of 80. 76 in palo alto tomorrow for your thursday. mid to upper seventies, about 680 close to 90. pleasantville 89. and pleasanton 90. sonoma gorgeous, sunshine and 83. san leandro 75. chilly one in daly city, high tomorrow 63. bay area highs over the weekend, 83 on sunday but a dispose weekend days, well into the '90s inland and at the coast we will see sunshine and highs in the '70s saturday, sunday, and monday before things cool off. a big fire concerned anytime you talk about offshore winds early in the fall. with more, roberta gonzales live
